Sign in to follow this  

The most famous of regions within the city of Rome. At the very centre of the city, in the valley formed by all the seven hills is the Forum. Ever-bustling, and always a place to see. This is where the government works for the good of the empire.

The Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus Capitolinus. The most important of all Roman temples, this one sat on the Capitoline Hill just adjacent to the Forum Romanum. It is here that Consuls were given their power on the 1st of Jan., here that triumphs ended, and here that the most important celebrations were held.
